Celebration Tags are a heartfelt way to support Foothills Animal Shelter and show your appreciation for that special someone—person or pet—who has made a difference in your life.

With a tax-deductible donation of $50 or more, a name and a one-line message will be engraved on a tag-shaped magnet (2 ½” x 2 ½”). The magnet will be sent to you to keep or give to the honoree.

Recognize the person or pet who brightens your life with a Celebration Tag!


Or … here’s another way to honor a very special person or pet—and help animals in need!
